Regarding Home of Charles Stillman. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark (1965), National Register of Historic Places (1979). This building now serves as the Stillman House Museum.
 
Also see . . .  Stillman House Museum. Surrounded by a black metal fence, the Stillman House Museum is among the oldest surviving structures in Brownsville. The house seen today is the result of additions made by the Trevino family during their time in the house. The original windows, shutters and doors are still in place and the breezy courtyards enjoyed by the Stillman and Trevino families still offer a respite from the hot Texas sun (Submitted on May 27, 2018, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
